Cloud DNS

A scalable, reliable, programmable, and managed authoritative domain naming system (DNS) service running on the same infrastructure as Google. Cloud DNS translates domain names like www.google.com into IP addresses like 74.125.29.101. Use our simple interface, a command line, or API to publish and manage millions of DNS zones and records.

Scale
Cloud Load Balancing

Quickly scale applications on Compute Engine—no pre-warming needed. Distribute load-balanced compute resources in single or multiple regions, and near users, while meeting high-availability requirements. Cloud Load Balancing can put resources behind a single anycast IP, scale up or down with intelligent autoscaling, and integrate with Cloud CDN.

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    HTTP(S), TCP/SSL, and UDP load balancing

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    Seamless autoscaling

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    High-fidelity health checks

Cloud CDN

Accelerate content delivery for websites and applications served out of Compute Engine by leveraging Google's globally distributed edge caches. Cloud CDN lowers network latency, offloads origins, and reduces serving costs. Once you’ve set up HTTP(S) load balancing, simply enable Cloud CDN with a single checkbox.

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    Global distribution with anycast IP

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    Optimized for last-mile performance

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    Named IP Lists

Cloud NAT

Google Cloud's managed network address translation service enables you to provision application instances without public IP addresses, while allowing controlled, efficient internet access. Outside resources cannot directly access any of the private instances behind the Cloud NAT gateway, helping keep your Google Cloud VPCs isolated and secure.

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    Managed NAT service

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    Multiple NAT IPs per gateway

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    Configurable NAT timeout timers

Network Telemetry

Keep services secure with in-depth network telemetry. Identify traffic and access patterns that may impose security or operational risks to your organization in near real time. Network Telemetry provides both network and security operations with in-depth, responsive VPC flow logs for Google Cloud networking services.

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)

    Monitor network traffic to and from Compute Engine VMs

  • check_circle_filled_black_24dp (1)
